    Currency war is only going to heat up more when the Federal Reserve is ready for QE3 (print money and lend against close to 0% interest rates and buys (for free) back worthless bonds from the banks that have them on their “shadow” balance sheets so they can use use fresh fiat money to gamble of the back of the tax payers on the futures market/commodities or lend it overseas at higher interest rates).

    This scheme has never worked and we all know how it will end if mad people do not get what they want...(currency war leads to trade war leads to real war is chaos and solution from the same scammers who robbed us from our wealth through inflation...must history repeat itself again?) Good news is, specially when the new Pan Asian Gold Exchange in China (PAGE) goes live and restore real value of gold and silver where the banksters have no control of their manipulation.
